We visited the Hobler a couple of nights ago for an evening meal. The pea and fennel broth with grey mullet (a special) was one of the best starters I've ever tasted, followed by a delicious venison stew with pearl barley. Highly recommend!

Great place to go for Sunday lunch after a walk in the forest with your dog. The pubs own dogs give you and yours a warm welcome. As far as the food is concerned don't expect haute cuisine but that's not what they are aiming...More
